The durian season is ending but it is still not too late to catch something here. Tried the "Mao Shan Wang" which was creamy although abeit darker yellow and more bitter than what I am more accustomed to. Also had the usual D24s which were just as bitter. All in all, great quality durians in a place where you do not get cheated.
I also tried some genetically modified rambutans which had shorter "hair" and in which the aril comes off easily from the seed. Interesting but given that I grew up on the more traditional fruit it just seemed a little too strange for my comfort zone.
One issue to note is that 717 Trading might not be very accessible for one without a car. Service also tends to be rather slow even on a quiet night. While not cheap, prices are generally quite fair. Also, while they sell durians all year around, prices tend to vary depending on demand so if you want to catch the last parts of the durian season you better head off soon - like tonight!
